[resolved] Random Posts by Category in Thumbnails (3 posts)

    I'd like to replicate the widget in the right sidebar at the following link under the heading "Random Buildings >>"

    http://www.archdaily.com/

    They have a category of post called "selected" that they are selecting random posts from and then using the first image from the post in a thumbnail to reference the post. I'd like to make a similar table of random post thumbnails from a given category. How did they do this?

    Thanks very, very, very much for any help.

    Any ideas? After much research, I can't seem to find anything. Thanks!

    So after more searching, I found "Post Thumb Revisited," which looks like it can do what I need. But I can't get it to work and am not sure if I want/need the software to totally redo my thumbnails. It also won't work. I installed it and implemented the random thumb widget only on one old post (using widget logic), and it's giving a database error. Here's the link, the widget is on the bottom right.

    This is a really urgent project, can anyone help?

    Thanks!
